Let it be known that I love coffee. In fact I love fluid. If I could drink all the nutrients I needed to survive, I would. I haven't had a coffee in five days - on no actually I lie. I had a coffee when we went looking at the huge phone market. San needed to use the bathroom and didn't want to use a squat toilet so we had to find a western cafe and buy something. I had a rather good, strong, and bitter coffee but that's the only one I've had.

I'm sitting in one of the airports in Shanghai and would love a coffee right now. I found somewhere to buy coffee but the price is 40 RMB which is about $11 NZD. I know airport food is expensive all over the world and usually not that good but far out that is expensive coffee. I think I'll pass this time.

They have Starbucks over here but I haven't tried it. Might give that a go when I get to Beijing. I haven't had breakfast yet and coffee would be just the treat I require.

Yeah, I know. I was amazed at the cost of coffee in China - but even worse green tea, who knew it would cost $9NZD? In the end I just ate Chinese m&m's which I swear tasted different to NZ ones (better actually) and drank water. At least I didn't have to wonder about whether my coffee contained ground dog as well. Ew.

Ground dogs? I'm not sure I know about that at all. Tell me about that before I have any coffee over here

haha i'm not sure if it's true. it's a little thing a chinese lady here told me, apparently she drinks tea in china but coffee here because there is no way kiwis would put ground dog in their coffee powder. i'm not sure whether she was trying to freak me out or whether it's true. i found it amusing anyway ;)i think you should find some and try it. that's why we're friends, so that you can do the crazy risky things and tell me about them
